Our wheaton terrior had a really bad wound on nape of her ear that was infected. Antibiotics, etc. did nothing. The vet suggested we pack it with sugar. 1 week later the infection was gone. They told me they had used it on a dog and it saved his leg! Honey works too but can be too messy.

Have you ever heard of using "sugar" to heal wounds? When I was young, our dog opened a large area near his scrotum that would not heal..My father suggested we pour sugar on it. The wound healed in less than one week. Has anyone else heard of this?
